This wine is showing a shocking amount of youth still, with only some ‘mature’ character. Lots of blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, and some cassis and spice too.

Wine Spectator (Nov. 15, 2011): “In a recent blind tasting, the 2001 vintage proved one of the most satisfying and enjoyable reunions in memory. I can’t recall tasting so many great – and often stunning – wines after a decade of aging. This qualifies 2001 as one of the modern classics of California Cabernet.” —James Laube

Wine Enthusiast (July 1, 2005): “…good example of a well-crafted Napa Cab from a great vintage. It’s rich and fruity in black currant, sweet herb and spice flavors, with a good but understated application of oak.”

Wine Spectator (May 15, 2007): “Minty currant, herb and sage aromas carry over to the palate in this intense, concentrated youngster.”
